The extent of the damage that the coronavirus pandemic is causing the world is mind-boggling. This has shown us that we cannot continue as before: there is no going back. However, despite this massive damage, it offers us an unparalleled opportunity.
The present coronavirus pandemic proves that our global financial system has failed and we cannot go back to the old one. We have to create new roads, systems and institutions to create a new world based on equality, sustainability, transparency and happYYness.
After a spring in lock-down, we now need a summer of purpose. We are proud to present Expedition Camp: Time to break forth, a satellite event organized as a part of Social Business day 2020 at Summer of Purpose. We are bringing 100 youth from the Asia Pacific together for a mindful experience to unleash our social and environmental consciousness for the new world.
Now is the time to realize that the power lies in our hands. When human beings set their mind to get something done, they just do it. Nothing is impossible for humans. The Time is NOW!
